Food Scene
This is one of my favorites! They are a French-style bakery with everything from almond croissants to gorgeous, tasty sugar cookies to delicious sandwiches with complimentary salad on the side. Wonderful ingredients and ambiance. Go early to avoid the family crowds. Not open on Mondays.

Cranky's Donut Shop is one of the local favorites, and it is one of our family's, too. It is well-priced, family-friendly, and has delicious donuts. They have traditional stuff as well as gummy bear-topped donuts, flavored coffees, etc. Go early; the locals crowd in starting around 9:00 a.m. Oh! And it turns into a pizza place in the evenings if you'd like to go for dinner--some say the pizza is even better than the donuts.

Juniper 61, named so because it's on the corner of North and 61st Street, has a wide range of very well-made food. It's mostly a mixture of American and Indian-inspired cuisine, with flatbreads and a specialty meat dish in rotation. The menu changes seasonally, and they have a nice mid-to-upper level drink selection. This is where we take the in-laws and/or out-of-towners we want to take out to a nice dinner.

Drinks & Nightlife
What could say, "Welcome to Wisconsin!" better than a northwoods-style bar? This is a fun spot--the ambiance has antler chandeliers and flannel booth-backs. It may sound a little kitschy, but they actually pull it off pretty well. There's also a fun outdoor patio area for warmer months.

Wauwatiki is a relatively new establishment, and the pun is a hit so far! As one could guess, it's a tiki-themed bar, but they serve a variety of drinks.
